Political heavyweights Justin Trudeau and Patrick Brazeau throw verbal jabs at charity weigh-in
The weeks of trash-talking and training will come to an end when Liberal MP Justin Trudeau and Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau meet in the ring this Saturday.
The two politicians-turned-pugilists are taking part in a charity boxing match — Fight for the Cure 2012, an annual fundraising initiative for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation — and will fight their way through three two-minute rounds.
“I’ve never hid the fact that I wouldn’t mind to put the hurt on Justin — it’s a boxing match, it’s not aerobics class,” Brazeau said at the weigh-in. (Photos: Chris Wattie/Reuters)
